Team member Appreciation Caricatures

Weekday-workplace gigs are not as common for me as weekend-party ones, but they sure are a bright spot in the day for the employees! This was for the team at an assisted-living residence,  and lots of them were big fans of wine for some reason!
...and one was a Pokeball fan. :-)
Oh heck, here's ALL of the caricatures I drew that afternoon!

Another company picnic: two in one week!

This one was held in someone's backyard!!!
                 My subjects had to cross a little bridge over a pond to get their caricature!!

Expectant mothers are fun to draw (if I am sure they are pregnant--but that's a whole other story!) This mom told me they were expecting TWINS!

Anniversary party for senior citizens' residence!

This was a afternoon session where I drew in a welcoming foyer, (above) and later, an evening session in a ballroom. Yes , I know my arrow is pointing the wrong way. 
And do I love doing the character in older faces!

The evening session was Broadway-themed with a live band playing! How fun is that!

Here is their reaction! I love that you can see others' reactions too!
Here's one I saw on a table on my way out. This place is one of my favorite gigs. :-)

Pokemon Birthday Party Caricatures

Check out this backyard: this is a lucky boy with a summer birthday and a mom who's into incredibly fun parties!
She even provided custom paper for me to draw on! What a blast! She also bribed a tween girl to supervise the "pokemon card sign-up sheet" for my caricatures. 
Below: the birthday boy with Pikachu!
This was another huuuuge party with dozens of kids and activity, (water slide!!!!!!) so I kept busy drawing and not photographing. Couldn't resist getting a shot of this little one, though!
Thanks to!

Seth's Bar Mitzvah 2016

THE ROCK AND ROLL BAR MITZVAH: Seth plays guitar and drums---and jammed with the band at his own bar mitzvah! It was awesome!

The video is of the band warming the time Seth did his jam session with them I was drawing. But it WAS awesome.

 Now for some thirteen-year-old friends!

Thanks for having me Seth!!!
I was treated to this amazing sunset on the way home. 
I love my job.

Campground Caricatures!

How about a gig in THIS tranquil locale? Beautiful, isn't it?
However, my gig wasn't on the river bank, but in the campground's air-conditioned clubhouse overlooking the pool:
...and it's one I enjoy doing every year through Entertaining ConXections---and the caricature-loving campground owners (who have their own drawings framed and hanging up in the concessions area:)
Here's a few of the faces from near and far who come to this idyllic peaceful place. :-)

Community Day caricatures on the river!

Every summer, I do this's usually hot...but I love it and the people have greeeeat faces there!

Can you smell the pony manure behind my spot??? 

Below, early morning before the crowds arrive. You can see why it's one of my favorite easel and I are right on the Delaware River.

Holiday gig #13 0f 2015

 Another company luncheon in a lovely restaurant. This group was small enough that in two hours I could draw everyone in color, and then in a B/W group caricature. Thanks for having me!
